"Is sun damage covered by car insurance? "
I have a car with full coverage and live in a dry desert area of the western US. The paint on my car is really damaged and looks pretty bad. Can my car insurance pay for that?

“Unfortunately, sun damage is not covered by car insurance. The damage that occurs from the sun is not a sudden and unexpected event, but something that occurs incrementally over time.
While you might think this would fall under comprehensive coverage, it would actually be considered normal wear, which is not something that you can claim on your insurance. “

Can my wife and I get a refund for gap insurance if we don't use it?
My wife got into an accident and her car was marked a total loss. Our insurance payout will cover what's left on our loan. We did purchase gap insurance from the dealership. Are we able to get a refund since we paid for it and never used it?
